Syrah Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard - Napa Valley

Syrah Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard - Napa Valley Wine Details
Price: $28.00 per bottle

Description: Sugarloaf Mountain is known for producing deeply concentrated, full-bodied wines, and our 2003 Syrah is no exception. The deep purple to nearly black hue of this Syrah is indicative of its bold richness in body and flavor.

Varietal Definition
Syrah is the eight hundred pound gorilla of Rhone grapes! In the vineyard and the winery, Syrah is typically an easy grape to work with - healthy, early ripening, resistant to mildew and rot; suitable for winemaking in a variety of styles. The wines from Syrah are tannic without being harsh. The wines will have a taste and smell of dark blue fruit like blackberries and blackcurrant, with a strong spicy side where one can find freshly ground pepper and other spices. Syrah is famous for its part in the French blends, such as Côtes du Rhone and Châteauneuf du Pape.
